Legal Operations/WORK ALLOCATION
Work allocation software supports allocation of work to associates and associate general counsel. It works based on a number of variables such as previous experience, the need for associates to build up a wide range of experience, diversity, rates and availabilty. Remote work arrangements make it difficult to allocate work as it was previously done because of physical separation. There is also sometimes a preference of a partner to work exclusively with the people they know to be good at a particular task. This can lead to associates being allocated the same type of work for years without gaining experience in other areas. Tools like Capacity, VI Utilize and Vantage by Bighand address these problems.
